This thesis examines music composed since 1960 which has a high degree of audible repetition. The principle aims of the research are to identify common repetitive techniques in repetitive music from a performance practice point of view. This is achieved through a study of the models and processes contained in individual works and the extent to which they determine and shape the repetition. A large sample of works are examined according to set style criteria which serves as a basis for comparison and generalisation about the genre as a unit.
